The contribution of Modic changes (MCs) in relation to spinal pain and degenerative changes has been evaluated frequently. However, most studies focus on lumbar spine. The association between MCs, neck pain and cervical disc degeneration is not clear.

Disc degeneration (DD) is a significant driver of low back pain and few treatments exist to treat the pain and disability associated with the disease.
Abnormal cervical curvature and cervical disc herniation are closely related to neck pain and should be taken into account before any treatment. However, studies have rarely reported on the correlatio...
Cervical spondylosis (CS) is a very common, age-related, chronic, disc-degeneration condition. Alternative medicine has been widely used to treat neck pain in CS. However, no randomized controlled tri...
To investigate the relationship between serum vitamin D concentration and lumbar disc degeneration (LDD) in postmenopausal women and the epidemiologic factors affecting low back pain (LBP).
We aimed to investigate mechano-sensitivity at the afferent nerve fibers projecting to degenerated intervertebral disc (IVD) and nociceptive behaviour in a rat model of low back pain (LBP).
Low back pain is a major public health issue as the leading cause of disability globally. Degeneration of intervertebral disc (IVD) disorder is once source of low back pain. Current treatm...
In the present study the investigators aim to examine the presence of bacteria in the disc and Modic Changes (bone) as well as characterize gene expression patterns and related markers to ...
Low back pain is one of the most frequent reasons for consultation in rheumatology. There is a strong correlation between low back pain, and the presence of a type of Modic 1 signal on MRI...
The purpose of this study is to determine the association of MODIC changes (seen in MRIs) with chronic low back pain in patients seen at the hospitals of the Spanish National Health Servic...
This study examined whether there is an association between the presence of lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration (LDD) and the size and symmetry of the cross-sectional areas (CSAs) of t...
The replacement of intervertebral discs in the spinal column with artificial devices. The procedure is done in the lumbar or cervical spine to relieve severe pain resulting from INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
Discomfort or more intense forms of pain that are localized to the cervical region. This term generally refers to pain in the posterior or lateral regions of the neck.
Fibrocartilage inner core of the intervertebral disc. Prolapsed or bulged nucleus pulposus leads to INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DISPLACEMENT while proliferation of cells in the nucleus pulposus is associated with INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
The dissolving of the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS, the semi-gelatinous tissue of a displaced INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. It is usually achieved by the direct injection of a proteolytic enzyme, especially CHYMOPAPAIN, into the herniated disc.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Pain is a feeling (sharp or dull) triggered in the nervous system which can be transient or constant. Pain can be specific to one area of the body eg back, abdomen or chest or more general all over the body eg muscles ache from the flu. Without pain ...
